    Nice place for a night out with drinks and great Greek food from Brotherhood next door. Souv had a great char on it. Drinks were original takes on classics and overall vibe was great

    We had a fantastic evening at Lay Low. It's so handy for all of us and the drinks and mezzo platter were delightful. They also handled the COVID-19 requirements really professionally and efficiently. Can't wait to get back there!

    Had the meze platter and some of the cocktails. Everything was really good and the vibe was just right, not too loud where we had to yell, but not quiet where we felt like we were at someone’s pity party. Would definitely come again.

    My wife and I love this classy, boutique venue. The staff are among the most professional in the industry. Sacha, Jasmine and Hayden. I name them all. They remember your name, provide a tailored experience, adhere intently to your likes, mood and requested flavours, before recommending cocktails or making cocktails to suit your palate and personality, for that occasion! I have no hesitation to consistently glow about Lay Low Bar to all my network, friends and family.

    The concept of the food is great and in the past it’s been nice but I feel because I went on a slower night there was less care taken with the food. I got the mezze plate, the meat was try and didn’t feel fresh, the chips were not hot and fresh and the salad was clearly a day old. Off the back of this I probably wouldn’t eat there again

    I love whisky. I love how much the bar tenders at Lay Low know about whisky. I love how they can talk about what’s on the shelf AND that they have new things to try all the time. I love that they let me smell the whiskies before I choose one to drink (COVID safe of course, I didn’t stick my nose down the neck of the bottle😆) It’s relaxed & it’s round the corner. I always enjoy a visit!

    Unfortunately our experience was not pleasant. Large group partying, VERY noisey and they had absolutely no consideration for other patrons. Really disappointed as l raved about this place to my friends. Perhaps big groups should be exclusive ??
